Try the faux duck and the chile eggplant, this was a great restaurant! We did not eat off the buffet but you can order off menu.

The best "Szechuan Beef" I've had in years, fake or not. Even your meaty friends will like it.

Don't be put off by the uninspiring decor. This is the real thing!

This place may not look like much, but they have great vegetarian food. I am a vegetarian and I appreciate it. The service was very good too - staff was friendly and helpful. The price was reasonable - same as what I would have paid back home in the GTA area. Will definitely return next time!

Great kitchen here. Not a fancy place at all, but the food is delicious and the prices are good. The eggplant is fantastic. The mo shu is also excellent.

This was my first time to the Lotus Pond. I am a vegetarian and this was the best vegetarian restaurant food I have eaten. The food is in the style of typical Chinese food. It is hard to believe that you are not eating at a typical Chinese restaurant. Yet all of the food is vegetarian. The decor is simple, but clean. Only downside for some may be that the restaurant is right next door to a Polish meat restaurant. I had the buffet and you pay by the weight. My meal was $8. My wife's was $6, so very reasonable.
